The future applications for cannabis are crazy. It almost defies stoner logic.

Studies have shown that when cannabis is used in treating certain illnesses, activity goes up. That’s right; pot gets you off the couch. Cannabis enables an MS patient who was permanently house-bound to go to her kid’s soccer games. A youngster who suffers from Grand Mal Seizures is partially controlling them with CBD pot and now is able to go to school outside the home. Cannabis can be used for weight control and to stimulate the appetite.
Because the CBDs in pot and their buddies communicate with the receptors in our bodies, we could have the potential to change the message that’s being sent. Tell your pain that I’m not going to feel you as much. You can choose between I’m not that hungry or I need to eat even if I don’t feel like it. Don’t get me started on relief from vomiting and nausea.
And a cannabis band-aid worn for 30 days removes skin lesions, some melanoma and other dermatologic ickies.
It just goes on… Because opiates and cannabis have different receptors; so to speak, they can work together and not step on each other’s toes. That means you can lessen the amount of the heavy shit you have to take and compensate the balance with cannabis. You’re down but not out.
Cannabis is less impacting than the drugs that the pharmacies sell. Cannabis works immediately. You don’t have to wait for the medicine to kick in. From chronic pain to epilepsy to depression to cancer, cannabis has been proven to be beneficial for the patient.”
